“Unexpected excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

Carmelo is not located in one of the well known tourist areas like Copacabana or Ipanema but on the border of the district of Flamengo and Catete. It has excellent food, a very good service and price. Really to be recommended.

“Excellent food and service, fair prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This place is proof that it is possible to find nice places outside the Ipanema-Leblon-Lagoa-Gávea-Jardim Botânico area. Food is excellent - great pasta and perfect grilled-meat - and the atmosphere is great. Service is excellent too. I went there twice: for an early dinner and for lunch at a busy time. Both times waiters and staff in general were great. Fair prices - about R$ 40 (USD 20) a main course - make it a perfect place. They have a small but nice wine selection.
If you are on public transportation just take the subway to the Catete station - it will be a 2-minute walk.

You should try it, one of the best restaurants in Rio. Specialized in pasta. The wine selection is very good as well.
